See this thread for more commentary and Brad Friedman's transcript of
the brief Q&A press conference with California Secretary of State Debra
"Voters are victims of federal certification process that has not done a
job of assuring machines are accurate, accessible, secure.
I reject the notion that I should not require changes in systems solely
because we already own them. She compares it to a recall of cars....When
NASA finds a problem, they don't continue just because they've already
spent the money. They scrub the mission and spend the money to get it
right. We must do same with elections.
"We have to be sure that our voting systems are secure, accurate and
reliable and they shouldn't be used [just because we own them]."
